Journey to the Edge: The need for critical real-time processing

Tuesday, 8 March

2:30 pm - 3:10 pm (CST) / 08/mar/2022 08:30 pm - 08/mar/2022 09:10 pm

Advances in digitalization over the past decade are bringing us closer to an ambitious industry goal―autonomous operations that enable continuously optimized, unmanned assets―one that is closely aligned with a set of broader industry aspirations around decarbonization, increased efficiency, and removing staff from harm’s way. Key to delivering this capability are ongoing advances in edge computing, and this session explores several aspects of this increasingly critical technology: What is the current state of edge computing, and what are the pathways for further development? What are some tactical applications, and how are they helping to advance such concepts as autonomous operations? How are energy companies managing the cybersecurity and technical risks associated with edge computing?
